If you are considering your own event at home, make sure you let your neighbours know so that they can prepare themselves or their pets appropriately.     

Making West Yorkshire Safer.


  • Burn aerosols, tyres, canisters or anything containing foam or paint – many produce toxic fumes and some containers may explode, causing injury.
  • Throw fireworks into the fire.
  • Leave the bonfire unattended, even for a short while.  


  • Think carefully about where you place your bonfire, how you will keep it under control and how you'll ensure family and friends are safe around flames 
  • Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose nearby in case of emergencies.
  • Keep children and pets away from the bonfire.
